Our adoption fee is $2,500 plus HST. The puppies go home already spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and with their first set of vaccines. We also include a puppy pack with grooming supplies, toys, personalized collar etc. The vet fees that are included in the price of our puppies represent over $700.
We understand that our puppies are a significant investment. However, there are substantial costs associated with raising a litter of high quality Australian labradoodles from fully health tested parents. The value of this health testing is passed on to the adopting family because there is a much lower risk of health issues in the offspring. We strive to produce puppies that will live a long, happy and healthy life with their owners.
Our puppies are all ALAA registered, and we have a 3 yr. health guarantee for any genetic illnesses. This guarantee covers the vet fees (up to 1/2 the purchase price of the puppy) for any genetic or hereditary illness in the first 3 years of life OR a replacement puppy.
All of our testing is available to view on the mom's and dad's page of our website. All of our breeding males and females have been health tested for hips (OFA), elbows (OFA), eyes (OFA), cardiac (OFA), patellas (OFA), vWD, EIC, PRA, DM and a full DNA profile.
We ship our puppies across Canada. WestJet is a fantastic company to deal with and they have always taken excellent care of our babies. Shipping is an additional cost of $375.
We also offer hand delivery to Europe (prices vary).
Growing up with Mom!
We are a small home breeder of labradoodles. This means that the puppies are raised solely in our house. They are accustomed to all aspects of the home life before going to their new families. From day #1 the puppies are handled and loved by people.
For the first few weeks, the moms are very doting on their puppies - rarely leaving the whelping area. The puppies are handled all of the time and the mom is not at all offended by this. We have 4 little boys that love our 'job'.
By 3 weeks of age, the puppies are getting more mobile. Their eyes are fully opened and they are just starting to walk around a little bit more. They are fed puppy food for the first time around 3 1/2 weeks. Very gradually the puppies are weaned from their mother to puppy food. By 5 1/2 - 6 weeks, the puppies are no longer with their mother. We start crate training and potty training around 4-5 weeks old, and continue until they are picked up by their new families. While they are no longer with their mother, the puppies are socialized with our other adult dogs. This is a crucial part of socialization!
At 6 1/2 weeks old the puppies are taken to the veterinarian for their 1st set of shots, and complete puppy check. We would also microchip the puppies at this age, if we have not already done that. The puppies are dewormed every 2 weeks while they are here (receiving 4 dewormings by 8 weeks old).
At 7 weeks old, we take our puppies in to be altered. The puppies are not even fazed by this minor surgery! We restrict their activity for the new few days while their incision heals some more, and by 8 weeks old they are ready to go to their new homes! By this time, our puppies are sleeping all night in a crate with no accidents! We are so proud of them!
